Back to the future
Contemporary glass inspired by the past


28 September 2018 to 17 October 2018

 

Pretoria is a proverbial melting-pot of glass art. With this in mind, several contemporary protagonists using glass in their oeuvre have been invited to exhibit new works which are inspired or reference the broad history of glass globally.
 
The suggested limitation is glass art, objects, tools and/or artefacts which pre-date 1900.  This can be a stained glass window from a cathedral, a Venetian goblet, Libyan Desert glass, a prehistoric spear tip and much more.
 
This exhibition aims to further cement our small glass community’s vernacular as part of the global vitreous dialogue.  Back to the Future is curated by Lothar Böttcher. 
 
The participating artists are Lothar Böttcher, Olwethu de Vos, Bongani Dlamini, Gordon Froud, Caitlin Greenberg, Mike Hyam, Martli Jansen van Rensburg, Thabiso Mokaba, Thabang Monoa, Kgotso Pati, Maxi Pretorius, Ian Redelinghuys, Liesl Roos, Nicole Rowe, Mbali Tshabalala, Retief van Wyk, Marileen van Wyk, Diane Victor and Berco Wilsenach.
